ARE you a woman, 35 years or older, who has always wanted to try AFL?

If so, a new program from AFL Masters, to be launched this month in Newcastle, could give you that chance!

AFL Masters has launched QuickKick, a fun, relaxed, fortnightly gathering of like-minded women who have always wanted to give footy a go but never got the chance when they were younger.

The objective of the project is to deliver a sport that is inclusive, fun, safe and provides a sense of belonging to participants.

It aims to provide a cost-attractive option for those seeking either physical fitness or social interaction amongst aged-peers whilst also developing the next generation of coaches.

The concept is proving a popular one, with more than 2,000 people signed up within days of QuickKick’s launch.

The AFL Masters QuickKick is an introductory program which is designed to teach the basics in footy – from handballing and kicking, to marking and bouncing.

Six fortnightly sessions will be held between May and September.

It will conclude in the sixth week with a fun match between the participants.
